Digital culture changes daily. Yet time and time again, artists reveal the potentials & breaking points of new technologies. Rhizome fosters artistic experimentation and digital cultural memory through major moments like our book and exhibition “The Art Happens Here” or the minting of the “first NFT,” and through the ongoing discussion and resource-sharing in our online community.

Show your support for born-digital culture by making a tax-deductible donation today. Recurring donors at any level are granted access to Rhizome’s Discord chat forum.
